11 November 2019 - Tristan Bates Theatre

Rich in textures, detail and persuasive characters, gains energy though African interactive and communal storytelling, but lacks conflict development.

10 November 2019 - Tower Theatre

Tower Theatre Company deliver a top-notch revival of Martin McDonagh's 1996 play that combines comedy and tragedy in almost equal measure - a wonderful, unmissable drama.

9 November 2019 - National Theatre

A complete dud. It isn't really funny, it doesn't tackle it's theme with any great imagination and frankly it was a waste of two hours.


All's Well That Ends Well

9 November 2019 - Jermyn Street Theatre

A rare production of Shakespeare's oddly dark comedy is embellished with some fine music and given a modernish twist in Tom Littler's lengthy but engagingly rewarding production.


Dear Peter

A confusing start and lack of clarity in the underlying themes weaken this work-in-progress show that features a character seeking solace from the 'boy who never grows up'.
